Dorotea Barnés

In Dorotea´s eyes

This work is a digital collage about Spanish chemist Dorotea Barnés (1904-2003),
Researcher and professor at the National Institute of Physics and Chemistry Spectroscopy section in Madrid. During Spanish Civil War, she was exiled in France. Upon her return (in 1940) she was disqualified from teaching and she stopped her researching. This work let us look through Dorotea´s eyes on an essential and impacting way, typical on this period’s posters: on one side, a war menace which deprives her about her passion and on the other, hers scientific and woman’s soul, full of life essence.
